    How can the systems and applications being developed by the assessment consortia be leveraged to advance and align teaching, learning and assessment in additional content areas?  This session will describe the multi-tenant system architecture being developed by the comprehensive assessment consortia, PARCC and Smarter Balanced, and how it can be used to serve additional content areas.  As states look to adopting and implementing the Next Generation Science Standards without the type of financial stimulus received for mathematics and English/language arts, these RTTT-funded systems provide an important but little understood foundation.
